Thank you for the information,
There can be a few possibilities.
It does not seem to be period cramps.
The symptoms can be due to pinched nerve in the back.
This can occur in disc disease, arthritis of spine.
The pain can radiate down the leg.
Other possibilities can be urinary colic, neuropathy or other nerve diseases.
You can take some measures to alleviate the pain.
Antiinflammatory drugs like motrin or tylenol can be used to relieve the pain.
Muscle relaxants can be helpful.
Please avoid any activity which aggravates the pain like bending, lifting heavy weight.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor.
Doctor can take a few tests like X ray, MRI, urine test to diagnose the problem.
I hope this information helps.
